LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Pulaski County Circuit Court judge has declined to dismiss a Fayetteville woman's lawsuit against the Diocese of Little Rock that alleges a Catholic priest manipulated her into a sexual relationship.
Oates alleges she and Charles Kanu had a relationship and that church officials knew of should have known about it. The church argues that any injuries Oates suffered were partially brought on by her own actions and that Kanu should be a defendant in the lawsuit.
